Carter Littlepage Stevenson's Division did not participate in the Battle at Ezra Church. In accordance with General Stephen D. Lee's report, "The army was then position and intrenched around Atlanta, daily shifting its position to meet the flank movements of the enemy. On the 27th Hindman's and Clayton's divisions were withdrawn from the trenches and massed on Lick Skillet road. On the 28th, about 11 a.m., I received orders to move out on the Lick Skillet road and check the enemy, who was then moving to our left, as it was desirable to hold that road, to be used for a comtemplated movement."
Stevenson's Division had been detached from Lee's Corps at some point around this time and backfilled temporarily with Bate's Division. Bate's Division joined Lee's Corps on 06 AUG 1864 and moved to the left flank, "almost perpendicularly to our main line and along the Sandtown Road." Stevenson's Division was placed, "in position immediately in front of Atlanta."
Stevenson's Division reported back to Lee's Corps at 11 a.m. on 30 AUG 1864 about three miles from East Point.
